Memory keeping in the kitchen?

How many family recipes do you have in your recipe books? How many of those have been passed down for generations? Of those passed down, how many tell a story?

My latest class talked about, and created a recipe album focused around that simple concept to create a family traditions recipe album.

We have recipes on my mother's side of the family, that start with a simple pound cake, made regularly, so that when a guest popped by my great-grandmother always had a treat to share.  I always knew that this was a family recipe, but I had no idea that my family shared this as special guest treat! 

Stories like these, especially around food, are timeless and a great way to bond our past to our present everytime we cook. 

Each class participant walked away with a jump start on a book ready to fill with more family recipes, stories and pictures. Some were gifting these, others choose to keep them, use them, and pass them down. 

If you'd like to order supplies to create your own family Traditions album, follow the supplies listed below, and I will email you instructions to get you well on your way to an amazing recipe book of your own. 
Hurry supplies are low for the holiday kit.
